Petrovsky Road Palace in Moscow is finally opened for tourists. 25.09.2011 22:27

Petrovsky Road Palace in Moscow opened his doors in March 2009 after 10 years of restoration works and now can be visited by organized guided groups as well.
Palace was built in 1775-1778 years by architect, Matvey Kazakov, under decree of Empress Catherine II. Petrovsky Road Palace is the most southern road palace on the route connecting Moscow and St.Petersburg, it was originally conceived as a residence for important people who could rest there after a long journey. Catherine the Great, stayed in the palace for the first time only in 1787. In 1797, Emperor Paul I- the son of Catherine the Great, stayed here before his coronation. Since then, the palace became a permanent spectator of official coronation ceremonies: on the road from St. Petersburg, all Russian monarchs stayed here before their coronation.
